Hi Tibby2018, just curious whether you went ahead with the build, with Fairhaven?
We are building through them, the Illuka also.
Our experience has been terrible. It’s been 21 months…

Hi guys,
I haven’t written on this blog for a while, but have been reading the progress. Our progress on our double storey home is so slow. Our contract date…

How frustrating for you! What exactly is the hold up with yours? Do they have an expected starting time?
Darbecca found 20+ defects but it’s all jargon to me so…

CalicoCat,
How frustrating! Darbecca also picked up issues with how our windows were installed too and not to manufacturers specifications.
My SS only just got back to me with photo…

Hi Zanzibar_45,
We are using Darbecca for every stage of our build, but it is expensive. We feel it’s value for money, being that we are spending so much on…

We also had Darbecca pick up quite a few defects. I’ve asked for my SS to provide me an up to date report that they have been rectified and I…

So exciting Bronte19! Looks great!
Ours felt smaller too, still does with the frame but I’m told once the plaster goes up you get more of an idea of the…

Lucky for you, you must have a great SS. Ours doesn’t reply to emails and most recently tried to give us a BS story why we couldn’t add niches to…

Very exciting JCM1! The Glenair is a beautiful home. Did you guys extend the garage? It looks wider in the pic. You’re right about the frame, our downstairs is up…

Yay!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Who would have thought we would all get so excited over a porta loo and some fencing! That’s awesome news Bronte19!

Wait until they give you an approximate start date and clean your block out then as you may find that people will just keep dumping things. At least that was…

Permit was obtained 04/05. Works started on site 18/05, slab poured 29/05. Frame started 28/05.
Bronte19 you guys won’t be too far off either. Did they give you an approximate…

Our frame started to go up on Thursday and they have completed all of downstairs so far. It was exciting to walk through the rooms today and get a feel…

Make sure you check and re check your colour selections and your drawings. Take the time to ensure that your drawings are correct and measurements too. We found quite a…

I just spoke to them and unfortunately as we have already started construction we aren’t able to add the shower niches. Silly of me not to have it done at…

Nothing more has happened, as we wait for the concrete to cure. We expect the frame to start this Thursday...I’ll update you guys as we move along.
By the way,…

How exciting Bronte19!! Go over all your selections prior and make any necessary changes on this day. As mentioned above, make sure you check everything on the drawing/plans. We were…

We are building the Iluka but have extended it and changed everything about it. I told Fairhaven we are renaming it after us, as it’s changed so much.

JCM1,
Your inspector should be onto it straight away. Just make sure you organise for the site supervisor and concreters to be there at the same time so that any…

Ours was signed off Aug last year so it’s probably an old promo

They picked up about 7-8 things that needed to be rectified. The report came back very detailed, with pictures and showed what was rectified on the spot, however it’s all…

Just a quick update on my end.
Our slab is due to be poured tomorrow. Darbecca did an inspection and they were able to rectify things on the spot.

We did, they charged us $583 extra

1 year1 yearPoniriPoniri posted:

I think Darbecca will end up costing just over $4000

Love your colour choices Bronte19! They all go so well together!
